On Wednesday, Bleacher Report’s Mike Freeman reported that if the Cleveland Browns (2-6) struggles continue, the team may look to trade WR Odell Beckham Jr:
Per the report:
“That’s why there are some teams that believe if the Browns continue to struggle this year, and those problems stretch into early next season, Beckham could get traded again. It wouldn’t be easy.
…Beckham could be traded after the 2020 season with no salary-cap damage.
Two NFC team officials said they don’t see Beckham getting traded this offseason, but one of them said, “The vultures will be circling if the Browns keep sucking.”
On top of that, Freeman gave his top-four candidates who might come calling if the Browns do make Odell available via trade.
However, to me, there are four main candidates:
Patriots: They get everyone. Hey, life isn’t fair.
Packers: Aaron Rodgers and Beckham would be, um, remarkable.
Ravens: Beckham would make an already dangerous Lamar Jackson even more so.
49ers: That offense would be as formidable as that defense.
The Browns season has been an unmitigated disaster and much of that has to do with the the regression of quarterback Baker Mayfield and the questionable decision making of Freddie Kitchens.
Meanwhile, Odell Beckham Jr. is off to the worst start of his career, recording just 39 receptions for 575 yards and 1 touchdown through the first eight games of the season.
